Check on your local ebay or craiglist equivalent, see how much such a model usually goes for.

As a starting point, you can check Mac2Sell, eBay (including completed sales), and Amazon for prices of similar models, to get an idea of what a reasonable price may be. Don't check just once source, but get an average from all sites for a more accurate idea. Some sites may be higher/lower than is realistic. Then adjust the price to account for condition, configuration, remaining AppleCare coverage (if any), etc. If the model is recent enough, you can also check the Apple refurbished store to see what similar models are selling for.

Most of those sites won't give him a good idea of local pricing, but in the US that would be an absolutely terrible price. For reference an identical refurbished unit with a year warranty would run around $1270. Completed sales are a bit lower on ebay. Err...wait I misread that. That's much higher than US pricing, but I would still say that he needs local references for pricing such a unit.

As I clearly stated, "Don't check just once source, but get an average from all sites for a more accurate idea. Some sites may be higher/lower than is realistic." I also clearly stated, "As a starting point..."

Also, local pricing may be irrelevant if the seller is selling on a more national or global site, such as eBay.
